Hear what customers are saying:

This place has some of the best wine around lake county. Thank you so much to the lady running Thorn Hill wine tasting! I can’t remember her name but she was amazing. This place is a must stop trip for wine tasting and some good bottles to bring home. Try the chocolate wine sauce it’s very good. Also this is a kid friendly environment with plenty for them to do. Thanks again to the lady running the tasting room you great at what you do…. keep it up and will see you next trip!

Lovely space and excellent hospitality. Communication was excellent. Close to wedding we were attending but I would absolutely recommend for a nice getaway. Complimentary tasting before we left and I’m currently sipping a lovely Reserve Volcanic Rock Cab i picked up. Excellent stay for the price. Quiet and comfy bed. Highly recommended. Only regret that we didn’t get to stay another night. Thank you.


Wonderful time spent with the members for a lovely Thanksgiving dinner & wine pairing! 3 best friends from Upstate NY were able to reunite & celebrate the holiday at this beautiful winery! Meeting the owner and her daughter was a treat as well – I will always return to Thorn Hill when I am in the area 💜❤️ thank you for beautiful memories
